Government picking winners is a fool's errand, and destroys jobs. Having bureaucrats decide which technology or product offers the most value must stop or America will be destroyed by a wrathful god. Which is precisely why bureaucrats at the pentagon must be removed from purchasing decisions. Instead, we need to trust in the market. Armed companies such as Blackwater (or what-ever they're called now) can purchase tanks, air craft carriers and nukes based upon sound cost-benefit analysis. We should start taking bids on bombing Iran!
